A warm welcome awaits you at East Dyke Farm. Set above the historic and beautiful fishing village of Clovelly on the North Devon coast, overlooking open fields and the sea. We are a 350 acre working farm. Just behind the Farmhouse you will find The Clovelly Dykes, a 2000 year old Iron Age hill fort which visitors are free to explore at their leisure.
Our delightful 19th century Farmhouse is situated on a quiet country road approximately 1 mile from the village of Clovelly and the South West Coastal footpath. Ideally situated for exploring the area and further afield.
The house itself is full of character with open fires, flagstone floors and exposed beams. The rooms are very comfortable spacious and light, furnished with antiques and period furniture. Look out of your window in the morning and amongst the cattle grazing in the fields you may well spot a Deer, Fox or passing Pheasant.
We have 3 bedrooms available. All the rooms are tastefully decorated, very comfortable with crisp linens and big fluffy towels, fully equipped with many thoughtful extras to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Each room has digital flatscreen TV/radio, a fridge, hairdryer, hospitality tray with a large selection of drinks and fresh milk, fresh flowers, magazines, alarm clock & toiletries etc.
Room 3 is a large double ensuite room (6ft Super King size bed) with stunning views across the fields to the sea. The large ensuite has a bath with shower above.
Room 2 is a large double/family ensuite room (5ft king size bed & single bed) with partial sea views. The spacious ensuite has a bath and shower above and again sea views from the window.
Room 1 is a twin room overlooking the garden, with a private bathroom (bath robes supplied) just across the hall.
We are perfectly situated above the wonderful village of Clovelly where the cobbled street meanders to the harbour; unchanged for generations and well worth a visit. By staying close to the village you have the chance to visit early in the morning or enjoy a leisurely dinner when the tourists have all gone…..then it's just you and a few locals!
There are many beaches both sandy (Bude or Westward Ho!) or small rocky coves in easy reach. The dramatic coastline of the Hartland peninsular should not be missed, enjoy the staggering cliffs and beach at Hartland Quay, or visit Hartland point and see the old lighthouse.
If you like visiting historic properties look no further than Hartland Abbey (much of the BBCs Sense & Sensibility was filmed here) the National Trust property Arlington Court close to Barnstaple or Tapeley Park at Instow.
The award winning gardens at Docton Mill Hartland (sample their cream tea too) or the RHS gardens at Rosemoor (Torrington) are spectacular at any time of year.
If you fancy trying out your sea legs why not visit Lundy Island just off the coast. The Oldenburg sails regularly from Bideford (10 miles) or charters can be arranged from Clovelly. You could always try a fishing trip to catch your supper or maybe just a trip around the bay.
For the more adventurous why not try diving; again available from Clovelly, or how about Falconry; experience day & fly with Samson the Golden Eagle. Try your hand at surfing on a visit to Bude or Croyde & Braunton.
Try an hour or two wandering around the galleries or shops at Appledore and Instow or maybe just sit by the river watching the boats and enjoying a drink or an ice cream.
We are ideally situated to explore further afield. Try a day trip to The Eden Project about an hour and a half drive. Or Drive over Exmoor National Park taking in the stunning views of moor and sea. Stop for a while to visit Lynton & Lynmouth.
Just over the border into Cornwall visit the Land of Arthur & Merlin, Tingagel is only less than an hour away. Drop into Port Isaac and see if you bump into Doc Marten. Or try Boscastle and see the historic harbour and how the village has recovered from the horrific flood. For the gourmets how about Padstow the home town of Rick Stein.
There are plenty of great places to eat in the area with something to suit everybody, from cosy country pubs to gastro pubs and restaurants.
There are a number of Golf Courses in the area, which welcome visitors, and for our younger guests (or maybe just the young at heart) try The Milky Way Theme park (1 mile) or The Big Sheep at Abbotsham (10 miles).
Whatever you decide be it relax or explore you will be close to the sea in tranquil surroundings, let us make your stay a memorable one. A Devon farmhouse welcome awaits you.
